Region refers to a DVD region. It can only be changed like 5 times. Has to do with licensing for movies. Steve

How do I change region code on Pyle pd1000a? Need region 1 and all I get is not formatted to play in this region error message. Don't know what region this thing is programmed to but need to change. Pyle...


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

Cant play a region 1 dvd


The DVD and *and* the DVD player both have a region code embedded in each. A map of the regions used appears below:

steve_con_2.gif

Regions 0, 7, 8 & 9 do not appear as they represent "No Region Coding" "Unused" "Cruise Lines" and "Region Free" respectively.

A DVD player will only play a matching region code DVD, or the player OR DVD have one (or more) 0, 7, 8, or 9 region codes imbedded. You'll not be able to change the DVD code, but you *might* be able to change the region code of your player. Computer DVD players can sometimes be flashed to a new region more readily than the entertainment system DVD players, but it relies solely on the manufacturer and model of the player. Some require file be downloaded and run, while others require a DVD or CD be created and played with a specific file saved on it. Here's a link to results that discuss how to change the region code for DVD players. You'll need to know at the very least the manufacturer and model number of you player to begin.

I hope this helps and good luck! If you found this helpful, please rate my reply 4 "thumbs up". Thanks!

DVD region codes are a digital-rights management technique designed to allow film distributors to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price, according to the region.DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.

The American DVD Copy Control Association in California requires that DVD-player manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system - according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, an Australian government agency.[1]

There are six different official regions and two informal variations.[citation needed] DVDs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also commercially available.[2] In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.[3]

I need transform my samsung ht-tz212 to region free


First, in order to do what you're trying to do, you would need a device hack, a series of commands that break into the device's firmware in order to change the region code. This is possible for some players but pointless as the region code is only half the problem and if you unlocked it you would have to change the region code every time you used different Region Code DVD's and you can only do it a maximum of five times before the DVD player becomes a brick. Sites that offer region hack codes don't mention this fact or the more important issue of incompatible analog standards and it is very important to understand. It doesn't matter whether or not you hack your US DVD player's region code, it broadcasts (transmits) the NTSC analog standard to the television which displays the NTSC standard. All other countries outside of North America broadcast using the PAL analog standard and the two standards are not compatible. Non North American DVD's are recorded in the NTSC analog (look at the back of any DVD and you'll see near the bottom it will say NTSC) and Non North American DVD's are recorded in PAL. Region Codes are only security features built in by the studios to control international distribution that block media from being played, not from being displayed and have ZERO to do with the analog standard of a particular country. The media, player and the display must all have the same analog standard and your television does not support the PAL if you live in North America standard so region code changes don't solve that problem (and vice versa if you lived outside of North America). To do what you're suggesting, you would not only have to crack the region code but you would have to use a converter to change the format of your R2 discs from PAL to NTSC. Your integrated DVD player does not have this capability and few do. The only option that you would have would be to purchase a true multi region universal player that has built-in converters to convert from PAL to NTSC.

Hi, My Pioneer XV DV131 doe snot support all types of DVDs. Is it because of some technical malfunction or is it because tht model is old & doesnot support some present DVDs. Thanks Aashdin


Hello Aashdin, there are various reasons why your receiver might not support some DVD's among them the age factor but more significantly i think the problem with your receiver is the region coding which comes with your receiver. Receivers are coded so they can play DVD's from certain regions only this is usually to help reduce piracy. Contact your local dealer to help set the code to play all regions.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

DVD region codes are a DRM technique designed to allow motion picture studios to
control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price,
according to the region. DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code
restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.
It is therefore this US Association that is responsible for the RPC system that
effectively divides the world into six regions for the purposes of controlling
and manipulating distribution within the global DVD market.
There are six different official regions and two informal variations.[citation

codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player
specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs
encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also
commercially available.In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be
region-free, allowing playback of all discs. Region code Area 0 Informal term meaning "worldwide". Region 0 is not an official setting; discs that bear the region 0 symbol either have no flag set or have region 1-6 flags set. 1 United States, Canada, Bermuda, U.S. territories 2 Europe (except Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus), Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland 3 Southeast Asia, South Korea, Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Macau 4 Mexico, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Oceania 5 Afghanistan, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Africa (except Egypt, South Africa, Swaziland, and Lesotho), Central and South Asia, Mongolia, North Korea 6 People's Republic of China, Hong Kong 7 Reserved for future use (found in use on protected screener copies of MPAA-related DVDs and "media copies" of pre-releases in Asia) 8 International venues such as aircraft, cruise ships, etc. ALL Region ALL discs have all 8 flags set, allowing the disc to be played in any locale on any player.
